Evernote Context automatically adds augmented intelligence to your notes

Evernote is adding what it calls "augmented intelligence" to Windows app with a feature called Context. Available to Evernote premium subscribers, Context essentially adds relevant contextual information as you're typing in your notes. These tidbits of information could be culled from existing notes that either were shared with you or were created in the past, along with external sources, like from The Wall Street Journal, Fast Company, Inc. Magazine, and Pando Daily.

Context informs your work right as you're doing it by connecting you to the most relevant information in your account and in the outside world. Using it is as simple as working the way you normally would. As you write or research in Evernote, pieces of information related to the topic you're working on start flowing in at the bottom of your note.

Additionally, Evernote says that it doesn't share your data with these external sources.

All of our augmented intelligence is performed within the Evernote service. The links we use when sending you to a publisher's content do not contain any identifiable information.

  • I've yet to see a system like this yield truly useful information.  But best of luck to them.
  • OneNote, anyone?

  • I used to use Evernote and thought it was the greatest thing ever. Then one day my web clipper glitched and used up my entire upload limit on the second day of the month. I transferred everything to OneNote with plans to go back to Evernote when things reset. Never did. OneNote is fabulous. To be fair, Evernote is a great product, but OneNote suits me better.
  • with OneNote, especally on my Surface pro, I don't thnik I can even switch to another NoteApp.

  • I like to make it as simple as it is... work on one note... just finish note and close it.
  • There are still times that I enjoy being able to forward an email as a direct dump into my Evernote -- you can't believe that OneNote has every single advantage.
